To meet the increasing demands of customers in the mining industry for trucks with four axles, Renault Trucks is now offering the Kerax XTREM in an 8x4 configuration on international markets. As its name suggests, this is an even more robust version designed for carrying minerals or operating under the harshest quarrying conditions. The Kerax XTREM 8x4 is available on international markets with power ratings from 439 to 520 hp for Euro V vehicles and from 380 to 500 hp with Euro III engines.
The chassis reinforcement was carried out by doubling the side members from the engine to the end of the rear overhang, by adopting four parabolic leaf reinforced suspension and fitting a drive axle strengthened to withstand a load capacity of 36 t (optional). Furthermore, the Kerax XTREM 8x4 is fitted with all the essential equipment needed for the most challenging assignments, for example a cast-iron flywheel housing (on the DXi 11), a twin disc clutch and a gearbox cooler. With the Kerax XTREM 8x4, Renault Trucks is proving its ability to provide companies specialised in mineral extraction or mining under the most testing conditions with the best solution in terms of load capacity, sturdiness and cost efficiency.
